Trauma Informed Care

When all preventative, rehabilitative and alternative measures have been exhausted, and women need to be incarcerated as a last resort, there must be a genuine focus on trauma informed healing & practice and rehabilitation within judicial procedures and within penal facilities & procedures. This must occur on all levels; structural (construction and design of facility must be suited specifically for the female body and experience), procedural (policies and processes) and cultural (environmental, emotional and systemic improvements).

All concerned parties should also take into consideration all of the information included herein regarding traumatic brain injury and females, all of the information included herein regarding females and domestic abuse, and all of the information included herein regarding incarcerated females and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and how this applies to the treatment of incarcerated girls and women.
